Where is the love + empathy? www.dayofempathy.org
Maryland Justice Project is in solidarity with #cut50 & criminal justice advocates across the country to build empathy for the millions affected by mass incarceration. Together, we can create empathy on a massive scale for millions of Americans behind bars and their loved ones by bringing impacted people and their families together with elected officials.
Join us as we push for lawmakers to support the following initiatives:
– Passing HB710 that refines the definition of a pre-release unit as a separate structure for individuals on pre-release status
– Passing HB715 that requires the Commissioner of Corrections to operate a pre-release unit for women
– Passing HB 0994 that would expand Ban the Box legislation to all of Maryland
